EXCLUSIVE: A London Meeting Before The Election Aroused George Papadopoulosís Suspicions
The Daily Caller ^ | 03/25/2018 | Chuck Ross

Posted on 05/17/2018 12:56:41 PM PDT by detective

Two months before the 2016 election, George Papadopoulos received a strange request for a meeting in London, one of several the young Trump adviser would be offered — and he would accept — during the presidential campaign.

The meeting request, which has not been reported until now, came from Stefan Halper, a foreign policy expert and Cambridge professor with connections to the CIA and its British counterpart, MI6.

Halper’s September 2016 outreach to Papadopoulos wasn’t his only contact with Trump campaign members. The 73-year-old professor, a veteran of three Republican administrations, met with two other campaign advisers, The Daily Caller News Foundation learned.

According to a source with knowledge of the meeting, Halper asked Papadopoulos: “George, you know about hacking the emails from Russia, right?”

Papadopoulos told Halper he didn’t know anything about emails or Russian hacking, said the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign.

After WikiLeaks published a trove of stolen DNC emails in July 2016, Australian government officials told the FBI about Downer’s interaction with Papadopoulos. The bureau opened its counterintelligence investigation July 31, 2016.

What remains unclear is why Downer sought the meeting with Papadopoulos. Was it to become acquainted with a member of Trump’s foreign policy advisory team, or was it an opportunity to gather intelligence?

Papadopoulos is either a Clinton/ Deep State operative working to sabotage the Trump campaign or one of the most naive people on the planet.

Well, it sure looks like Halper was the spy that CIA / FBI was using, or one of them. That is some clever tradecraft, “you know about the hacking, right?” Is that something they teach at Quantico or The Farm?

If I'm not mistaken, Papadopoulos worked in HRC's State Dept. So, it sounds like the former.

The entire thing stinks. The government operatives involved, and the people behind the attempted coup need to be prosecuted to the fullest extant of the law.

Halper must be the oldest, fattest spy on the planet. He looks about 5 minutes away from a massive coronary. Too many G&Ts at the Traveller’s Club?

Was/is STEFAN HALPER, the Deep State’s Mole/controller planted on Trump’s team?

Halper is a super mole/controller for the Deep State Elite going back to President Nixon/Ford/Carter/Reagan/The Bushes, Clinton and of course Obama.

Thread by @The_War_Economy: “A BLITZ ON STEFAN HALPER Stefan Halper has been in the news recently as he was the one who reached out to George Papadopoulos in September 2.

You have to admit he was great in Star Wars Episode IV "A New Hope". Of course, back then he had Princess Leia on a chain so that probably wasn't politically-correct.

These people are professionals. THey are bigger bunglers, all of them, than the Watergate plumbers.

I don’t see how the FBI comes out of this with any integrity.

They’re laughable.

Yeah, that assumes there are not still elements within the CIA working against Trump.

Halper first contacted Papadopoulos by email. In a Sept. 2, 2016, message sent to Papadopoulos’s personal email account, he offered the Trump aide $3,000 to write a policy paper on issues related to Turkey, Cyprus, Israel and the Leviathan natural gas field. Halper also offered to pay for Papadopoulos’s flight and a three-night stay in London. . .Papadopoulos and Halper met several times during the London trip, including at the Connaught Hotel and the Travellers Club — a classic 19th century club foreign diplomats and politicians frequent. Halper’s research assistant — a Turkish woman named Azra Turk — also met with Papadopoulos. The Connaught Hotel meeting was scheduled for Sept. 13, 2016, and the Travellers Club conclave was two days later.

Meanwhile, Flynn was lobbying for Turkey and was being monitored by U.S. intelligence. Coincidence or related?

He's vain, ambitious, manipulative, and dumber than a box of rocks... so I'd say he's a rat operative albeit a small fish. Not only that but that qualifies him to run as a Democratic Party Senator.

Wonder if he has any ties to Robert Creamer and his congresscritter wife?

Is Papadopolous married? To whom?

Is Sam Clovis married? To whom?

Is the Cambridge professor married? To whom?

My original post said whiskey & soda but I changed it to G&Ts. I had lunch once at Cambridge College, in Keats’ old study. The food was quite good, I was introduced to delicious bread sauce. We probably had wine, I don’t remember. In any case, he looks terrible!

I wasn’t, necessarily, but now that you mention it... I wouldn’t be surprised. You may be on to something there.
Especially after hearing the mention today that Brennan is known for walking about Langley with an LGBT lanyard around his neck.

I was interested in the usual lib thing of having one spouse in government and the other in media, etc.

I forgot about the 1930s ring.
